Starck, Christoph Thomas; Mayer, Kurt; Hürlimann, David; Steffel, Jan; Falk, Volkmar (2014). Completely epicardial implantation of a cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator using a minimal invasive approach. Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon, 62(1):70-72.

Abstract

We report the case of a successful completely epicardial implantation of a cardiac resynchronization defibrillator using a minimal invasive approach in a 55-year-old patient with dilated cardiomyopathy and a history of three cardiac surgical procedures of the aortic root, the ascending aorta and the aortic arch. Due to a chronic Q fever the patient was regarded unsuitable for a transvenous implantation.
